“I am encouraged by the progress on our organic growth initiatives, both in the Nordics and the UK, where we have capitalised on our strong positions,” said group chief executive Torbjörn Magnusson in a release, while pointing to “solid results” across all operations.

Meanwhile the quarterly report is the last with Björn Wahlroos (also known as Nalle) as chair.

“I would like to thank Nalle for his huge commitment and contribution to Sampo for over 20 years and, although he leaves on May 17, Sampo will retain the razor-sharp focus on profitability and value creation that he has instilled in the group over his time here,” commented Magnusson.
